Our CEO Will Fox is once again leading our special overland safari through Botswana in May 2018. This amazing tour is only available once per year and offers unbeatable value. Starting in Johannesburg, we visit the Okavango Delta, Moremi and Chobe National Parks and then Victoria Falls before a flight back to Johannesburg.
We have limited places remaining for this special safari and will close the book shortly, so if you are interested in this amazing trip then please Email Carol to register your interest and secure a no commitment option.
This unique safari is for those who are looking for something different and enjoy travelling in Africa, where the journey is as important as the places you visit. We travel from South Africa to Northern Botswana and on to Zimbabwe and the magnificent Victoria Falls, with return flight to Johannesburg. Along the way you will visit the Okavango Delta, Moremi and Chobe National Park and much more. We travel in specially adapted air conditioned 4x4 vehicles with roof top tents, and mix camping in remote locations with game lodge accommodation. Our next overland safari departs from Johannesburg on the 13th of May 2018 when the weather is normally ideal for this form of travel and for visiting many of the locations.

Kruger boom means book now for 2018

South African tourism is experiencing a boom especially for safaris taken in the greater Kruger Park area. I think it's fair to say that the secret is out and the main cause of this boom, is the exceptional value and quality of a safari in the Kruger area. Which is great news, however, this does mean that places for safaris in 2018 are filling fast. Our lodges and game reserves maintain strict limits on the number of people, based on sound ecological reasoning i.e. to avoid pressure on their precious eco system.
All of this means that we are already seeing a lot of advance bookings as our guests take up the special discounts we are offering in 2018. Gone are days of last minute bargains. Quiet the opposite, it's now the case that the best deals are found when booking early.
We are already filling our book for safaris in 2018, especially for our special offers, which we will be ending shortly. So if you are thinking of a safari in 2018, grab a bargain now, while our special offers are still available.

Tourism dollars working for conservation


Tourism dollars working for conservation 
Before he was tragically killed in 1989, George Adamson famously wrote:
"Who will now care for the animals, for they cannot look after themselves? Are there young men and women who are willing to take on this charge? Who will raise their voices, when mine is carried away on the wind, to plead their case?"
Undoubtedly, the threat to Lions has increased in the intermediary years since George died and (sadly) wild Lion populations across Africa have fallen dramatically, primarily due to habitat loss.
But where there is life there is hope, which is why we are developing fresh wildlife education projects. Not just education for the sake of it but a study into what is the most effective way of offering wildlife conservation education to local communities.

Buying in dollars? Unprecedented time now to grab a safari bargain

Living in the USA and hoping to go on safari in 2018?
The weak pound against the dollar offers an amazing opportunity to grab a bargain when booking a safari with us, due to the current exchange rates.
This blip in the exchange rates, is unlikely to last long, indeed the trend is already heading upward, but you can still grab a bargain.
